People often write and tell us how they are getting on with their yurt. Here are some examples from the past twelve months (2013):
"it was not until we were in the process of erecting the Ger that we noticed just how much work goes into the construction, the craftsmanship and attention to detail is clearly evident. Once fully erected we were stunned by the environment that it creates; those staying in the Ger are amazed - certainly has the wow factor, as such we will be seeing many of this year's visitors again next year"
"...the Yurt is fantastic ... It is a brilliant addition to our small home in the village...can't imagine life with a yurt now! ..thanks for the excellent support and instructions"
"I purchased a yurt from you in 2005. First I have to say it is a wonderful structure. I am a storyteller and have had it up at countless festivals, other events and camping, and it is still going strong. Thank you dearly!"
"We are delighted with our new yurt - thank you. It is very beautifully made indeed."
"Everyone who has seen the yurt loves it and is full of admiration for the workmanship."
"I am thrilled with the 12ft yurt, and you've done such a good job with it, it doesn't seem at all weakened by 15 years of use. It's certainly long lasting and hardwearing, not to mention beautiful."
"We have had such fun with the yurt and it has been much admired for its beautiful workmanship."
"It looks beautiful and it isn't even up yet!"
"I recently bought a wonderful 13 foot ger from you ... Many thanks, and I am enjoying the yurt so much :)"
"I have lived in it for many months during the summer seasons and love it dearly."

"I cannot express enough how pleased I am with my yurt . You Know it has been up continuously for more than 10 years"
"I have had one of your yurts for over ten years now and it is a constant source of real pleasure for me."
"Helen and I have thoroughly enjoyed using our yurt at G&A for the past five years and it has never leaked once not even during the severe challenge of last summer."
"I have also seen some other yurts but for craftsmanship and great construction, especially the roof cover, yours is the best."
"Thank you, Paul for many great years holidaying!"
"It's 11 years old now so has done us good service."
"It looks fantastic, really a top quality. Mill's comment was: this is the rolls royce of all yurts."

"We're celebrating the end of our second week of yurt life and are absolutely delighted with it. The yurt is garnering much attention and admiration from neighbours, family and friends and everyone is blown away by the quality of the workmanship and by how beautiful it is."
And Here are a few example from previous years:
“I picked up a 16ft Yurt off you at the end
of last summer. I just wanted to write and say thank
you for such a great piece of joinery. I have been taking
the children round the country in it, from campsites
to friend’s cottages and without fail it draws
an admiring crowd for the sheer perfection of the craftsmanship
as well as the fantastic design. My father is a joiner
and I know the love and skill it takes to work wood
well, so I looked at many other yurt builders over the
years before I found your good self. Thank you for giving
me my dream yurt and my children something magic in
(J.P. London 2005)
